For whom? Currently ADSL companies advertise Internet access in my area
slightly more expensive than Ethenet providers for the same download
speed (and much slower upload speed).

In order to offer ethernet, you have to have cables capable of carrying
it. There are a lot of buildings and neighbourhoods that have lots of
phone cable but no cat5 or fibre.

What's the problem with stretching such cables? Currently at least 3 providers
have their separate ethernet networks in my building.

The only way is via ADSL riding on
the phone lines or by the cable TV networks.

Why do you think cable TV coaxial(or anything) is better than UTP? To have
cable TV you also have to make wiring.

In this country television is historically by radio shared between flats by
coaxial. Even if there were (or are) some cables connecting the buildings to
a district TV hub (there were sometime in 90s translations from a district TV
studio), it is unevident by whom such cables may be owned and why they should
be interested in Internet deal and even if they agree how all customers would
share one cable?

Only imagine: plain UTP ethernet cable has bandwidth 10-100 times greater than
any old wiring that could exist, even without optics and cat5 cables.

If you want to provide modern cable TV with Internet, you still have to
provide optics to any building, so no difference from ethernet.

It cost a lot to rewire an
area with a new cable type.

Which area do you mean? One building? Or a wider area?

So, the work around, in the mean time, is
ADSL, cable, microwave or satellite.
